Security Antivirus

Security Antivirus Description

ScreenshotSecurity Antivirus is a rogue anti-virus program that, like its clones from the FakeVimes family can't do anything to provide security to your computer, even though their names suggest that they are real. Security Antivirus gains access the compromised computer with the help of Trojans and corrupt video codecs. Once active, Security Antivirus installs itself and changes the system registry to start automatically each time Windows launches. Security Antivirus runs a fake system scan of your computer, which produces false results to scare you into purchasing a useless rogue spyware remover. It is advisable to have Security Antivirus removed with a proven anti-virus program.
